The 2014 Wally Waddle was our biggest and most successful Waddle to date. We had record numbers for both the 5k and the kids mile run. We raised over $3000 to send kids to YMCA Camp Segowea and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.
An event like this doesn’t happen without a whole bunch of people doing lots of hard work. Camp Segowea alumni make up a large portion of our volunteer force, doing everything from directing runners and managing race day registrations, to face painting and fundraising. The Mid-Hudson Road Runners always show up in force to help with timing and scoring the race, and we had a great crew of current Camp Segowea employees on hand to help setup and talk with parents about camp. And of course I can’t forget to mention our many pie elves who bake nearly 30 pies every year!
A big part of our annual success is due to our business sponsors. They help provide awards as well as dollars to help send area children to camp. Please consider supporting them in return.

There were 193 5k finishers this year (up from 178 last year), and the first one across the line was a familiar face. After a one year hiatus Mike Insler returned to win this 4th Wally Waddle 5k, while Connie Seigh took the top spot for the women. You can find all the race results including the 1 mile and the family team scoring on the results page.
Charlotte Kopp was on hand taking hundreds of photos. You can see them all on her Shutterfly page http://share.shutterfly.com/
Thank you to everyone one ran, walked or did a little bit of both. I truly hope you had a great time and I look forward to seeing you all again next Mother’s Day.
